Just made this and it was delicious, really flavoursome but simple to make. I used Cod instead of Swordfish as that's what I had but it definitely needs a more robust fish. - 10 May 2013

I made this for my family and so had to double the ingrediants. I also changed a couple of ingrediants - instead of fresh plum tomatoes I used a tin of chopped plum tomatoes and added the juice of 3 limes. Because we don't like curries too spicy I used mild Chilli powder and mild Madras Curry powder. RESULT: Fantastic, sweet and creamy with a little kick. I took what was left over to a colleague who loved it as well and wanted the recipe. Perfect with Rice and Beans - 03 Sep 2013
